 %%  the acronym of R&D can apply to both research & design or and research & development  O0 ....

May be used in industry to allocate financial costs  <*<....however is really no different in when we go to the local library or maritime museum for our research of a particular model

So we can allocate 2+6 sixpence bus fare + $ 3.80 for Mc Donald's lunch............we book it all down to the cost of the model {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

My accounant >>:-( wouldn't have it any other way.........thats R&D for you.....Derek  :}

How about Retirement and Destitution?

Now that should be the fate for bankers and politicians,
instead of for the majority of us.

Ruddy Difficult

That just about sums up building model boats  O0

"Real difficulties can be overcome, it's only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable."  [Theodore N. Vial]

“Technology is a word that describes something that doesn't work yet.”   [Anon]

“A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.”    [Douglas Adams]
